Barking Slopes – Multimedia Workshop

The Barking Slopes conservation area used to be an area locals would avoid, with a steep hillside along a river that attracted crime, dumping and homeless encampments. Now, the Allegheny Land Trust is enacting a management plan to revitalize the area.

Created by Point Park University Students Megan Bixler and Briana Walton, with guidance from Times Leader Photojournalist Sean McKeag. Bixler, Walton and McKeag participated in the 2017 Multimedia Workshop, hosted by the Point Park University Environmental Journalism Program.

During the two-day workshop, students and mentors were paired up and sent out to report on an assigned story topic, with the deadline set to 5:00 the next day.

A big thank you to our mentor, Sean McKeag and to Allegheny Land Trust for participating!
